@LeonardLady:  Love the post!!  I will be going away with my SO next weekend and I’m sure I’ll come back empty handed (so to speak).  I hope I handle it as well as you have.

I’m sure he’s probably waiting for a time when you’re not expecting it!! 

My bf done the same. I was thinking maybe Valentines day… no…. then I was thinking surely he’d do it on vacation a couple of weeks later? But then he done it the weekend after Valentines… (and it was on the beach where we first fell in love with each other!)

Lol, great post !!

You made me smile and chuckle (and frown a bit too, cause I`ve been in your shoes)

Mr TTR and I were dating for close to 6 Years, when I told him I had “changed my mind” about marriage.  And now it was back on the table… IN A BIG WAY

(I am an Encore, who was married for over 20 Years, and had a Horrific Divorce)

I told him my LIFE PLAN… what I wanted for the next 10 to 20 years or so, including where he fit into the mix

Engagement – Wedding – Marriage – Semi Retired to Full Retirement – Time to Travel – Time to Stay Home and enjoy Grandkiddies (lol if our own kids ever get married)… and then time to relax and spend our Golden Years together as long as we can.

We agreed we`d be married by the end of 2012 (this talk was in 2011)

And then I waited…

Waited patiently thru…

Our Dating Anniversary – His Birthday – Christmas Parties – Christmas Vacation – Christmas Eve – Christmas Day – New Years Eve – New Years Day – Our Annual Winter Getaway (a very ROMANTIC cruise) – Mardi Gras – Valentines Day – My Birthday…

H3LL, I even waited thru… Boxing Day – Ground Hog Day – St Patricks Day – and April Fools (that one I thought was sure gonna be it… as he is such a kidder)

In the end, I had just decided I needed to calm down and give in (ala Mr Bee`s Plan) and the boy … would do it on his own schedule… afterall he already knew mine.

I had virtually given up… worrying about it, thinking it would happen probably sometime in the Summer (we have lots of great summer memories and things we do each year together as part of our Relationship Routine)


We head off for a quick getaway over Easter (nothing special there) and voila he pops the Question in a very HIM way… with what I fondly call our NON-PROPOSAL

We see a couple on the Beach getting Wedding Photos done, and he says

“That looks like fun”

And I say…

 “Ya think so ?”

(Me relating more to the fact that the wind is blowing them every which way etc… and not really focused on WHAT he`s just said literally)

And he says…

“Ya you should look into that”

And I said…

“Really ????”

And he said…

“Ya for the next time we are here in Myrtle Beach”

(Which I knew was over Christmas… voila there you have it a Non-Proposal… and Wedding before the end of the year)


Thats my boy (and hes over 60 !!)

— — —

To be honest, I couldn`t be happier with my Non-Proposal Story… it fits us to a Tee.  We began ring shopping the next day, found THE RING 6 weeks later… and time just sped thru our wonderful 9 month and a bit Engagement.

The Elopement (we ended up actually doing it in The Keys vs Myrtle cause the weather was better) and our Honeymoon were FRICKIN AMAZING… a real fairy tale come true.

Lol, and the Marriage ain`t half bad either (coming up on 6 months now)… as I tell him…

“Think I`ll keep him round a little while longer”
